I shot a cow last fall with 110 grains of Pyrodex Select and a 295 grain Powerbelt (lead). It was only a 70 yard shot and was quartering; we found only one spot where the elk coughed-up some blood but no more was found after an extensive and lengthy search. I now know I should have used a different bullet, but I feel that without 209's we are quite restricted on loads. Any advice or suggestions?

There isn't an elk on the planet that should walk away from a well placed heavy conical.
